obama talk explicitly about race. >> that a powerful moment is the first black president talks the least about race. it is the third and fourth and fifth rail. , part of what he tried to do was say let me say something that will bring people together then i won't have to bring it up again. the americans are so fatigued about race, resistant that to bring up that too often they will disqualify from the highest office in the land. but there are ways to address with differences that down to invoke race. but we don't have to have race specific programs to have race equality. but the irony is prepositioned the you would qualify yourself. of so that means he could negotiate this incredibly difficult scenario to stand for the racial possibilities but that would define disqualification. >> host: are white americans particularly oversensitive or to careful about the race card? >> guest: we are all sensitive. but i feel like the difference is often there is a way you can imagine what america in say get over race and move on. we don't have to wallow in what is so pernicious. so it is easy to

think either party wants to cut spending that they regularly talk about and obama talked about cutting spending line by line. republicans talked about small government. but every year we look back and we say oh wow it's grown even more. i think there's going to be a lot of back and forth. it strikes me that that's obama's plan that he wants to get ahead of it, but the reality is neither party is going to do anything. that to me is the big scandal here. we're a constitutionally limited government yet it collects 2.5 trillion dollars a year. it strikes me that that's the scandal that not enough people are talking about, a limited government wouldn't need that much money. dagen: how do you think the debt ceiling fight does play out, however? again, if you have people who have nothing to lose, then they become very dangerous, if they're willing to put their necks on the line for this kind of fight, because there's this one and then the sequester and then the budget and then we roll on. >> i think we're going to see it play out the way we did the last time. a lot of drama. washington loves

don't think they are good for the country. this san opportunity for president obama to reach across the divide, the campaign is over. is it? that is one of the big tests we're gonna see, does he still talk about rich versus poor? does he still divide the country? does he talk about well, social justice is still the big issue, not growth for everyone. is it one america against the other? >> let's talk more about that, because if we asked people what kind of president will president obama be in his second term? and this is what they said irk 20% said obama will be outstanding, 34% said above average. 12% said below average and 29% said poor. so what can the president do to boost those approval? >> that is still 54% of the american people. he won with 53% of the vote. many republicans wanted him to be a one-term president but now that he has a second term, i think it's time to put aside just the -- that we see in politics today and focus on the big issues. the president reaching out. he will continue to reach out. but the republicans also will have to meet him halfway. a reason why we have

" jody cantor and it seems since the campaign trail in 2008, when we talk about michelle obama, for some reason, it seems to revert to fashion or what she is wearing or what she did with her hair. >> she has become almost a one-woman stimulus package for the american fashion industry. we haven't had a first lady since jacqueline kennedy who had such a following. she mixes the high and the low. she loves j. crew and the gap as much as she does narcico rodriguez. >> how important is that to put forth that message as she is trying to put forth the message about the causes she is championing? does that help her? >> something funny happened on friday. she made a very important announcement about the president's new organizing group. it was a big deal for her to be the spokesperson. behind the scenes, there has been a lot of back and forth over the years about how involved she would be in his political life, et cetera, et cetera. she makes this video which is big news in the political world. that's not what really makes the headlines. her new bangs make the headlines. there are even headlines

raided -- so we have rated that a promise broken. where obama talked a big game about transparency, fulfilled a lot of transparency, don't get me wrong, but on something like that, the way washington works, those negotiations are not on c- span, they are in a room at the white house where deals are cut. it is sausage being made. that promise was not fulfilled, so that one earned a broken. host: what about his broader pledges on health care? guest: health care was an area where he had a fair amount of success. he kept 47% of the health-care promises. many of those were tucked inside the health care law, which of course passed in the first two years of his presidency when democrats controlled the house. so health care was an area where he had some of his biggest success. from caffeyhear from michigan on our democrats line. caller: good morning. i think the president has kept most of his promises. everyone he could possibly keep. i mean, the republicans have gone after him like nothing. but during the presidential election, you heard him say many times -- the republicans say -- "facts

president obama and maliki talk? >> guest: rarely come and what president obama basically delegated the iraq file to vice president joe biden, and vice president biden -- >> host: when did that happen? >> guest: it happened in 2009. very early -- well, maybe even, well yeah, 2009 in the first part. so, he had the lead for the iraq policy. and a lot of this is reflected in my book. but there was a debate about how much to get involved behind maliki, and the investor at the time, ambassador chris hill pretty much thought that maliki was the man we had to work with and that his rival didn't really have a good chance of making it to the prime minister post not withstanding the fact that his party won more seats than maliki's party but there was a debate in the government where vice president joe biden came down and was in favor of working with maliki as there would be a necessary evil or just the man that was going to be there. so, when things really get hot or when there is a crisis, vice president wyden calls and he called the iranian flights to syria. he called about the release. but it

obama administration is doing, and it is interesting that the national liberal media is not talking about the agenda and why it is choosing first to deal with the second amendment. we will explore that in the "chalk talk." tillman, they cute. ed rollins and doug shown, always illuminating. let's turn to the weekend box office. the oscar-nominated zero top -- zero dart 30 took the top spot. the sony drolen about the cia hunt for osama bin laden's. the movie that originally entered republicans after president obama llowed the film makers to consult with the cra now has the democratic party in a fury with similar carl levin and dianne feinstein along with republican john mccain containing a movie it creates a grossly inaccurate and misleading suggestion that torture was used to track down osama. is it possible that there is overwhelming support among movie audiences for the conclusion? irrespective of the methods employed? we will see how he does in its succeeding weeks. open road films for parity a haunted house opened in second place. below expectations, third place over 17 million.
